Sleeppea (overnight support)

Transitioning to parenthood can be difficult. There are so many things to consider, from changing nappies, deciding on the vast amount of baby aids that are now available for you and your family, the feeding and sleep schedules, dealing with visitors…...and the list goes on!

I understand the importance of a full nights sleep and so I can provide parents with overnight support. It really can make the world of difference in Mum’s postnatal recovery and the partners bonding, to know that your baby is being tended to while you get some well earned sleep! Each overnight plan is tailored to suit the needs of the family, and can include a hot tea/coffee and breakfast in the morning!

The sleep package includes :

  • Personal consultation to discuss sleep routines, bedtime, bath time etc.

  • Overnight home stay for 10 hours each visit

  • Bringing baby to Mum for breastfeeding (if required)

  • Change and soothe baby back to sleep

  • Few quiet household chores such as washing bottles, putting away laundry etc.  

  • On call text and phone support for additional support

  • Checklists and referrals if required
